Likely one of THE most attractive maternity couples I’ve ever photographed – SCORE for me, their excited maternity photographer :-)Â Cathee and Julian are expecting a sweet baby girlÂ and I’m guessing you are as shocked as I am to hear that this couple will be receiving their bundle of joy this month!Â I know, I know…she’s so tiny (I had Mommy arch her back so we could really emphasize her tummy on some of these shots)Â We did some really awesome & arty studio maternity shots but I was so in love with this dress that I just had to showcase their outdoor lifestyle maternity looks for everyone here.Â Modern maternity for me is about finding something Mommy feels gorgeous in and Daddy feels…well since we all know we are dragging Daddy to these shoots…it’s about getting your husband to like his outfit enough to just show up for the shoot :-)Â We also added more to our maternity gallery here.
Some photo shoots are just NOT difficult — I know you are thinking “it’s because Skyline High School 2013 Senior Elle is stunning”… right?Â Well…that sure doesn’t hurt :-)Â But if I left it right there, I’d be burying the lead.Â Truth is — Elle did such a great job in preparing for her senior pictures session that we could just put all of the focus on having a great time – and that makes everything simple from there.Â Â What did she do?Â FIRST:Â She arrived looking like the best version of herself. Zero experiments. No dramatic changes to hair and make-up means that the final images will look and feel like the girl she knows.Â SECOND:Â She arrived with 6 outfit choices and narrowed down to her favorite four looks.Â She remembered to include a variety of different accessories from jewelry to shoes. THIRD:Â She came with a great attitude (and her lovely Mom).Â Nobody is doing brain surgery at Studio B so it’s important for us to just relax and remember that we’re here to play and have fun!
This is my second time photographing the oh-so-pretty McGaskey Family of five and as you can see…it was action packed!Â Young Cameron is a VERY energetic…and how should I say it?….opinionated little boy.Â Let’s go ahead and get inside the psyche of a 2 year old shall we?…He had me cracking up…and his parents sweating within the first 5 minute of the shoot.Â As soon as I realized what we were all in store for, I told his Dad…if he makes a run for it — grab him by the ankles and hang him upside down(honestly…I don’t know why that is so effective but it usually does the trick for a a frame or two!)Â Here’s what’s hysterical…he wanted NO part of the camera and the set — until I began to photograph JUST his parents — then he was all about getting back on set! (exhibit A is here on your right)Â Comedy.
Nothing like kicking off the morning at Newcastle Golf Club for my first senior pictures session of the day with Issaquah High School’s Danny.Â It’s so pretty up there…even as I felt a “sploosh” from over head — what?Â Yep, that would be rain drops…the BIG soggy kind.Â Are you kidding me?Â Luckily we were able to get some really cool shots before Seattle got serious with it’s weather pattern
Tell me you aren’t smiling at the screen right now?Â The outfit choices that Mom included for the shoot were so so adorable and 9 month old Alexa has that big tooth-free smile that just makes you have to give her a big grin right back!Â This baby girl is right in the zone for my very favorite type of baby shoot — LOVE the babes at 8 to 12 months…so much personality — YET…not a lot of “leave-the-set mobility” :-)Â Â Â BIG Thanks again to our friends over at Chic Ink for the super cuteÂ handmade Tassle Garden Pennant decorating our set featuring Alexa in her rosebud pink frock!
